Sunday 14th September 2014, is a day I will never forget.I'd always describe myself as too sensitive, and this day proved it on every level.Moving from home, the place I'd lived all my life, in a small town with my parents and brothers and sister.Even when puberty came, when friends grew out of playing with dolls and started walking to school on their own, even when my baby sister had gotten older and was out nearly every night after school, busy shopping, going to cinema or painting friend's toenails, I was at home with my best friend, my Mum.
